In September 2010, I decided to go on a pilgrimage in India with a group of devotees from the Van-Hanh Pagoda in Nantes. It took me two months to get everything I needed: airplane tickets, passport and visas. International law requires that your passport must be valid at least 3 months after leaving the country you are visiting. I was very happy waiting for the day of departure.

A yellow-colored Buddhist temple adorned with flags and golden dragons on its pointed roofs in a quiet town outside Tokyo presents a stark contrast to the typically somber-looking Buddhist places of worship usually found in rural Japan. But the steady stream of out-of-town weekend visitors and their nationality also set it apart, for the temple was built by and serves members of the large Vietnamese community in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

Buddhism was introduced to the U.S.A. by the Asian immigrants in the 19th century. There is no reliable data on the number of Buddhists in the United States but today it is estimated to be a few millions. 1.25% of the total U.S. population is identified as Buddhist followers. Prof.Dana Eck of the Harvard University talks about the presence of three types of Buddhists such as , Buddhists, Nightstand Buddhists and Strongly influenced Buddhists and they amount to be around thirty millions.

Nguyện đem công đức này, trang nghiêm Phật Tịnh Độ, trên đền bốn ơn nặng, dưới cứu khổ ba đường,
nếu có người thấy nghe, đều phát lòng Bồ Đề, hết một báo thân này, sinh qua cõi Cực Lạc.

May the Merit and virtue,accrued from this work, adorn the Buddhas pureland,
Repay the four great kindnesses above, andrelieve the suffering of those on the three paths below,
may those who see or hear of these efforts generates Bodhi Mind, spend their lives devoted to the Buddha Dharma,
the Land of Ultimate Bliss.
